I was diagnosed with Shingles on the 17th April and started taking the antiviral tablets straight away - and was given painkillers to take too.
The Painkillers gave me such awful constipation/bloating and pain that I had to stop taking them and my bowels are still not working properly now
I have tried desperately to continue through the pain but it is so bad I end up in floods of tears - I can't carry on like this.
The blisters that I has from my tummy button and all round the left side of my waist to my centre back. are now nearly gone, my back and tummy are now numb where the scars are, but my side and the lower part of my abdomen are very sore to the touch still and painful, I have had to start taking the painkillers again but only a single dose twice a day to try and get some relief.
Reading on here how long and how bad some people are suffering has frightened the life out of me - will i ever be better, or is this it for me from now on?.
Any tried and tested methods that anyone knows of - I would be really pleased to hear about.
I really hope everyone suffering feels much better soon.
